Following Sega’s announcement last year that the english release of Hatsune Miku: Project Diva f will be coming to PS Vita, the virtual idol’s addictive rhythm game is now available for eager fans to download and play via the Playstation Store via PSN. Priced at £23.99, the vita version of the game features most of the songs from the PS3 version, save for a few extra DLC songs, which can be downloaded to add to the song library included in the game. In addition to the modes in the PS3 game, the vita version includes an AR mode to take pictures of Hatsune Miku in the real world using the PS Vita camera, and view virtual performances using your surroundings as her stage.
In addition to the song pack DLC available for the game, a few extra modules can be downloaded to give the characters extra costume sets to wear whilst performing. For the english release of Project Diva f for the vita, SEGA have announced a cross-buy promotion for the DLC, so that if you purchase the extra costume modules via PSN for the vita version, the download will be available free of charge on the PS3 version of the game as well, and vice-versa.
